Just tried installing FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE on an Eee PC, and it works
pretty well -- except for the wireless interface, which is dead, dead,
dead. It's an Atheros "AzureWave" chipset, and it did work with the
included Linux distro before I wiped the disk and installed FreeBSD.
Any ideas as to how I can get it working with FreeBSD 8.0?
